That video was taken on the first afternoon of the fire and I happen to be watching with a pair
of 8&42's. A Neptune made a drop on the fire side of that ridge before 130. The 130 was next
and it looked like his compete drop was on the south slop (away from the fire). I only hope there were no fire crews on this side of the ridge. Later, a Neptune came back and made a second fireside drop. The Neptune drivers fly those big old suckers down low and slow. My hat's off to them.
Over a week later; when smoke permits, I can look up at the South side of that ridge and see pink
fur trees.

There was a large MAFFS training event at KGYH a while back and got some photos of a number of them.
